Postdoc vacancy (1.5 years) on topology optimization of electrical machines

Over the past years, UGent-MMS has developed a stand-alone topology optimization code for additive manufacturing applications. The topology optimization software can deal with thermo-mechanical coupled problems, combined with multi-material selection. Such features are not available in any commercial topology optimization code.
The code can also deal with large industrial optimization problems, with millions degrees of freedom in three-dimensional finite element models.

The next step is to extend the topology optimization code towards multi-physics applications, in particular electromagnetic fields in electrical machines. The purpose of this postdoctoral research is to develop topology optimization strategies for electromagnetic problems into the existing UGent-MMS topology optimization software. This requires an advanced knowledge of Python programming, topology optimization strategies and electromagnetic simulations. The candidate will closely work together with the senior postdoctoral researcher who developed and is still developing the UGent-MMS topology optimization software.

Only candidates with a PhD degree in Computational Mechanics, Electrical Engineering or similar should apply.
